Q1000 release/renew ip trick.
This applies to the Actiontec Q1000, not the Zyxel.
This is a little useless on Windows without command line versions of both wget or sleep. Anyway I made a batch file called "ipreset.cmd" with the following commands:
wget --user admin --password %1 --delete-after 192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle=0
wget --user admin --password %1 --delete-after 192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle=1
I can then type "ipreset.cmd password" to change my IP where password is the modem's password. I tested it on Windows XP but I'm sure it would work on Linux.
I'd call it a proof of concept reset script. This information could probably be used more efficiently. Literally opening "http://192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle 0" disables the internet connection and "http://192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle 1" enables it, just the same as if you pressed the corresponding Connect or Disconnect button on the status page. That's is where I got the URL's from, after all.
